As Gaeilge, one of my favourites is comhaltas -- friendship. Learning together. What Duo is all about ;)

Also, félicitations for your lovely 100-day streak! :)

One of my favorites would be the German sentence: "Hilfe, ich werde gegessen!" (Help, I am being eaten!)

En Espanol, es "Emparadado." En Maygar, es "legeslegmegszentségteleníttethetetlenebbjeitekként".

hmmmm, ok let me try this(it is in Spanish): mi madre no como lettuga. (My mother does not eat lettuce) :)

Do you mind if I give some corrections? This sentence is almost right, but I'd like to help you get it 100% correct. It would be 'Mi madre no come lechuga,' because the Spanish word for lettuce is not 'lettuga' and you conjugated the verb 'comer' for yo rather than ella. : )

Le mot le plus interessant est probablement maladroit. J'aime son son (lol).

Jeg liker ordet "datamaskin." Det betyr "computer" I engelsk. Norsk er svært likt engelsk.

Jag kan förstår dig och jag har aldrig studerat norska. Konstigt.

April 17, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hannahviolinist

does that mean "I can understand you because I have also studied Norwegian"? I have no idea what "konstigt" means.

April 17, 2017

Word-for-word, "I can understand you and I have never studied Norwegian. Weird."

It's in Swedish.

April 17, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hannahviolinist

I was pretty close! I only missed "and" and "never" and "weird." I knew that was Swedish cuz it's so similar to norsk.

В УКРАІНСКОМ, моє улюблене слово - горинич. Це славік дракон.

Îmi place cuvântul "dor" din română. Este un cuvânt pe care nu-l poți să traduci exact în alte limbi și cred că este un cuvânt draguț.

Apropo, îmi place ideea ta cu "întrebari de sâptămănă". Sper că vei întreba ceva în fiecare sâptămănă :)
